Climate Change Communication Internships, Summer 2012
National Park Service (National Capital Region) &
George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication
Deadline: April 17
The National Park Service (NPS) cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage. In this capacity, NPS is in a unique position to observe changes brought about by global warming, and to engage park visitors and neighbors in conversations about climate change. Mason’s Center for Climate Change Communication (4C) conducts research on, and teaches about, climate change public engagement strategies. Seven interns will have the opportunity to work with NPS staff and a 4C PhD student on climate change communication projects in the summer of 2012.
The internships will be based at Washington, DC area NPS parks and at 4C. Six of the interns - working in pairs under the supervision of 4C staff - will work with NPS staff in a national park, developing park-specific communication projects. The seventh intern will work the NPS’s Urban Ecology Research Learning Alliance on a region-wide project; this position may be renewed for a second summer (in 2013) if the intern performs well and has the requisite skills.
